6:32 am
oscar grant on new year's day of 2009. he faces 14 years in prison unless they can argue for a new trial. oscar grant's mother is expected to speak so it could take several hours before we know his fate. the outcome of that controversial case is sure to stir emotions in oakland and across the state. it is hope that people express themselves civilly. christie smith is live in oakland with how police and businesses are trying to prepare just in case protests do get rowdy today. >> good morning. there is a gathering planned for this afternoon near city hall. oakland police are saying they are not expecting crowds as big as last time. that's when peaceful demonstrators showed up and splinter groups broke off. we saw the damage here in downtown oakland while this morning some businesses are taking no chances. they are boarding up and there
6:33 am
three businesses on one corner alone at 20th and franklin including two banks. the nurse's association boarded up this morning and parking is restricted along the area near 17th street where businesses were hit before. oakland police say they want to respect the right to free speech and assembly and they won't tolerate violence and destruction. extra police officers are on duty and outside the law enforcement agencies to come by and help if necessary. back in july following the verdict for mehserle, businesses were spray painted and windows broken and stores looted. many thought the verdict was too light for what happened. this morning we have to say most businesses aren't boarded up in downtown, thinking it won't be as bad as some think. others say they are simply taking the day off and they will be back on monday.
6:34 am
live in oakland, today in the bay. >> thanks a lot. jody hernandez is in los angeles and will be covering the sentencing. it's supposed to open up at 8:30. she will have a live update and what to expect in the hearing in a little bit. >> almost half of all americans will be obese. a study looks at how people gained weight and haven't figured out how to lose t. 40% will reach obesity before this levels off. the spread is due to social interaction, easier access to unhealthy foods and a culture with less physical activity. >> 49 verse a week off and will not play sunday that gives them more time to get over the jet lag. the raiders host the chiefs at 1:15 on sunday. we do not know if the game is going to be blacked out. the nfl normally makes that
6:35 am
decision on the thursday prior to the game. the game was close to being sold out and the deadline has been extended until 1:00 this afternoon. if it sells out the game will be seen on television across the bay area. the sharks are going to be back home and they are trying to figure out how to get the puck in the net. the team has not scored in two games. they were shutout in st. louis and hopefully turn it around when the lightning visits the shark tank at 7:30. we want to recognize the san jose earthquakes in the middle of playoffs with the team with the new york red bulls. they won last night by two goals. the hero of the game was danville native who scored the series-clinching goal and the quakes advance to the finals, but we are still a wading to find out who they will play. >> time is 6:35. no need to sit around and play
6:36 am
xbox. we seal how the connect works. >> we hear he is at the podium right now. we will see what he has to say. >> encouraging news. based on today's jobs report, we now see private sector job growth for 10 straight months. that means that since january, the private sector has added 1.1 million jobs. let me repeat. over the course of the last several months, we have seen over a million jobs added to the american economy. in october, the private sector added 159,000 jobs. we learned that businesses added more than 100,000 jobs in both august and september as well. we now have seen four months of private sector job growth above
6:37 am
100,000. that's the first time we have seen this kind of increase in over four years. now, that's not good enough. unemployment rate is still unacceptably high and we have a lot of work to do. this recession caused a great deal of hardship and put millions of people out of work. in order to repair this damage and create the jobs to meet the large need, we need to accelerate the economic growth to produce jobs at a faster pace. because the fact is, an encouraging jobs report doesn't make a difference if you are looking for work. i won't be satisfied until everybody who is looking for a job can find one. we have to keep fighting for every job or every new business and every opportunity to get the economy moving. just as we pass a bill based on
6:38 am
both parties, i am open to any idea and any proposal and anyway way to get the economy going faster so people who need work can find it faster. this includes tax breaks for small businesses like deferring taxes on new equipment so that they have incentive to expand and hire as well as tax cuts to make it cheaper for enterprises to start companies. this includes new infrastructure to trains to high speed internet so our economy can run faster and smarter. it includes promoting research and innovation and creating incentives in growth sectors like the clean energy economy. is certainly includes keeping tax rates low for middle class families and extending unemployment benefits to help those hardest hit by the downturn while generating more demand in the economy. it's also clear that one of the keys to creating jobs is to open
6:39 am
markets. to american goods made by american workers. our prosperity depends not just on consuming thing, but also on being the maker of things. in fact for every $1 billion we increase in exports, thousands of jobs are supported here at home. that's why i set a goal of doubling america's exports over the next five years. that's why on the trip that i'm about to take, i'm going to be talking about opening up additional markets in places like india. so american businesses can sell more product abroad to create more jobs here at home. this is a reminder that the most important competition we face in the new century will not be between democrats and republicans. it will be to lead the global economy. our success or failure in the race will depend on whether we can come together as a nation. our future depends on putting politics aside to solve
6:40 am
problems. to worry about the next generation instead of the next election. we can't spend two years myered in gridlock. countries like china are not standing still and we can't either. we have to move forward. i'm confident if we can do that, if we can work together, this country will not only recover, but it will prosper. i'm looking very much forward to helping to pry the markets open and help american businesses and put people back to work in the course of this trip. thank you very much. >> you are listening to the president showing positive information in the fifth straight month of growth. we'll be right back.

6:45 am
mehserle has been in jail since he was convicted in july waiting for this day. waiting to hear what his fate will be. oscar grant's family has been waiting nearly two years to have this wrapped up. a lost emotion on both sides. we can expect that both families will speak in open court. oscar grant's aunts and uncles and mother and girlfriend are expected to address the court. this is the first time they have a chance to speak in open court and tell the judge how they have been impacted and explain their nightmare and how the family impacted. we understand that mehserle will make a statement. his attorney said he is preparing a 10-minute statement. one thing that the families wanted to hear and they repeated this over and over in the months since the shooting. they haven't heard a direct
6:46 am
apology. they will get that today. his attorney will make it very clear that he is sorry and he is sorry to the family for what happened, he is going to apologize in court. >> we're are also hearing and we talked to analysts who expect that mehserle's attorneys will also ask for a new trial. do you think that will happen or will we proceed with sentencing as scheduled? >> that will happen. there will be arguments. it's not going to be a quick hearing andy wool not get in court and hear a sentence right away. they will argue that they believe they are entitled because of the verdict. the jury did convict him of manslaughter saying he didn't intend to kill oscar grant, but at the same time they came back with a gun enhancement.
6:47 am
that is contrary. the legal experts seem to believe maybe they have a shot at gunning the trial. if that happens, the sentencing will not happen today. >> thank you very much, jody hernandez live in los angeles getting ready to go to court again. this is slated to begin at 8:30 and take several hours before we get the sentencing results. >> oakland police will be ready for possible protests after mehserle's sentencing. christie smith continues team coverage with how officers and businesses are preparing. good morning. >> i can tell you that groups are coming to downtown to have a demonstration to honor oscar grant in front of city hall. they don't expect crowds to be as big as last time. some businesses have pictures of oscar grant in the window perhaps as a show of sympathy and others are taking no chances
